Fleetwood Mac The Chain takes me back to the spring of 1977.

Janis Ian’s At Seventeen came out while I was good friends with four seventeen year old girls. We listened to it all summer.

“Magic Bus” by The Who is one of those kinds of tunes for me. ;-)

Anything by Andy Gibb is VERY remeniscent of the late 1970s to about 1980, and anything by Air Supply takes me back to the early 1980s, These songs were everywhere in their day, but largely unheard of in later eras

@Yellowdog -Shadow Dancing is the one I think of when I hear his name.

@Tropical_Willie -I remembered that Eric Clapton was also in that band and just read that Jimmie Page was as well.
They knew how to pick guitarists.

New Wave 80s songs. Second happiest years of my life. High-school and college.

The happiest were my childhood years during Christmas season and this version of this song by the Andrew Sisters has a breathtaking nostalgic effect on me whenever I hear it. The song
